6:04 am
find this animal because it's so aggressive. there's a high probability it will attack again. fortunately in this case, the boy will survive and is in fair condition at valley medical center. we're at the trail head near the attack where the attack happened on sunday afternoon where that hike began. the 6-year-old victim was attacked about a mile or so down on a nearby trail around 1:00. the trail is by the kenny winery in the cupertino hills. the boy, his parent and siblings and another family of five were walking when the mountain lion jumped on the kid. the animal dragged him into the brush, injuring the boy on his back and neck. his parents had to fight off the mountain lion. fish and wildlife closed down the trails to search for the lion but no luck.
6:05 am
they say meanly because of the heat yesterday. they're expected to go at it again today. >> we have to start from the attack site and move out in concentric circles looking for tracks of that lion. we do our best to find the exact lion that was responsible for the attack, but to answer your question about do lions stay in the same place, they do and sometimes they don't. >> reporter: wardens have also enlisted the help of four federal tracking dogs. fish and wildlife says mountain lion attacks on humans are extremely rare, 16 ever reported in california. we're also told that two game wardens spent the night at the attack site just in case the animal came back. mountain lions tend to come back to an attack site but overnight there was no sign of this mountain lion. >> the watch continues. thank you. >> it is 6:05. the family of a special needs

6:16 am
invest in ali baba very early and will make tens of millions of dollars off the ipo. even the structure of the condition a company and how it works should be run squarely by yahoo! but it's not. alibaba wasn't going to invest or list on the american stock markets, it's wanted to do it on the hong kong markets but hong kong's rules protecting investors were too strict. noodle on that for a moment. so they are listing on the exchange were rules are looser. we'll be talking a lot more about ali baba over the next couple of weeks, sam and laura, but it's going to make history.

really nice for your outdoor plans if you're someone who works outdoors. we're looking good on the peninsula to hit 76, on the east shore low 70s for you. in san francisco, 65. we'll hit 83 degrees out in the tri-valley. looking great out there. it will be much warmer as we head through the mid section of your week and high pressure takes control for us. that's going to translate to a return to the upper 80s. meanwhile we'll get a stretch of gorgeous weather. september is the warmest month statistically speaking in san francisco. let's get an update on that traffic alert. here's mike inouye. >> we're looking toward the intersection of 3rd and carroll. kris sanchez is gathering information. there's a look at the muni vehicle, we presume the one involved in the crash where the pedestrian is in critical condition.
6:20 am
they've been taken to the hospital. that's northbound t-3rd. let's take you out to the maps and i'll show you where this is in relation to highway 101. williams is right over there. jones playground in the area, you'll know where that is. it's not affecting the on or off ramps. we did see traffic going by in a second direction. the northbound may have traffic control, and if it is they will take you around. highway 101 is moving smoothly and around silver avenue is where you can cut over toward 3rd if that is your route. the rest of the city looks nice getting into and out of the area over the bay bridge. we get details on that muni system and details on that person's injuries.
6:21 am
we had the metering lights turn on a tad bit early. nothing unusual here. back to your maps. we're talking about the tri-valley and a big slowdown for west 580 as we move over toward the dublin area. 680 shows a slowdown. nothing really unusual. there's a crash right around 680 and mission boulevard on the northbound side. that won't be a big issue. another one through sonoma moved to the shoulder. northbound 101 does show a good volume of traffic. there's a slowdown toward 880 and 87 show as little build. 85 from 17 up toward sayratoga, typical traffic. >> it is 6:21. the legal fight over same-sex marriage back in the courtroom this morning. >> but first, a quick gander at

6:24 am
a very good monday morning to you. taking you live to san francisco this morning, where a muni train has hit a pedestrian. that person is said to be in critical condition. it's happening at 3rd and
6:25 am
carroll. a bus bridge has been set up to help commuters along. we'll have a live report coming up from kris sanchez. she's gathering information as we speak. >> three legal fights on the issue of same-sex marriage will heat up today in a california courtroom this morning. until the u.s. supreme court makes a determination on this issue, this will just go state by state? >> that's right. that's why the 9th u.s. circuit of appeals court in san francisco has become such a big stage for this issue. public seating in the courtroom limited throughout a lottery today. the federal appeals court has set aside two hours to hear the cases for idaho, nevada and hawaii. the court has already ruled in favor of gay marriage. in 2012 it struck down prop 8, the gay marriage ban in california here. this year it ruled in favor of extended protection for gay and
6:26 am
lesbian couples. 30 major companies, including target, ebay and pfizer have chimed into this discussion, urging the supreme court to settle this issue. they argue the inconsistently with different rulings from state to state on this issue has become problematic in regard to human resources. and various religious organizations say the lack of the ruling by the supreme court is also tough on them, sending mixed messages to those in their groups. the u.s. conference of catholic bishops and church of jesus christ of latter day saints are two of the five groups who have hold the high court's ability to ban gay marriage. as for today, besides the history of the federal appeals court on the issue, the three judges who will be hearing today's arguments may be quite telling. we'll have more on that in about half an hour. >> we'll look forward to that. thank you.
6:27 am
>> 6:26 right now. >> still ahead, an update to the breaking news we were telling you about. a person was struck by a muni light rail train in san francisco. it is also affecting the morning commute. we'll have an update on that person's condition. >> and a rare virus sending hundreds of kids across the country to the hospital. what you need to know as you send your kids off to school. >> and taking a live look outside overlooking san jose this morning. we'll check in with mike with the morning commute and christina has a peek at the forecast as well. 6:27.

6:29 am
an update on breaking news, a muni train hits a pedestrian. >> while we're concerned about that person we're also concerned about your commute. we'll have an update on that. >> and you can see the fog on
6:30 am
the san mateo bridge this morning and we also have some on the golden gate. much warmer as we head into your week. in week, new forecast. we'll take you through the changes in your microclimate. >> wall street having a foggy feeling about what's going on with the economy. the new york stock exchange this morning as they ring the opening bell. we got the jobs numbers on friday and they were just downright confusing. on the nasdaq the market is open. we'll check "your money" in just a meinute. >> a live peek outside. the america building and a full panoramic view on monday, september the 8th. this is "today in the bay." >> good monday morning to you. i'm sam brock. >> and i'm laura garcia cannon.
6:31 am
>> in san francisco, a muni train has struck a pedestrian. >> kris sanchez is live at the scene. what can you tell us, kris? >> reporter: traffic is starting to pick up already this morning so we'll start to see the impact of this accident on the morning commute and on the folks who use the railway. the train has not moved off of its tracks, though. it's sitting right where it hit that pedestrian this morning at 3rd and carol street. the pedestrian appears to have major trauma to his head and possible injuries to his face as well. he has been transported to the hospital. his condition has not been updated beyond saying that it is critical. as far as the impact on the commute, you can see the t 3rd line is stopped in its tracks in the northbound direction, but there has been a bus bridge set up so it does not appear it lwil be a massive impact on the commute. the biggest impact would be on
6:32 am
carol avenue, which would run through the intersection of 3rd street here. the bus route will remain in place and as we learn more about the condition of the pedestrian, we will update you and mike inouye will keep you updated on the impact on the commute. >> thank you, kris. >> let's check in with mike right now. he has a look at the morning commute and a look at how tough it could be for people who use that line. >> this is right around bay view, around jones playground, 3rd and carol. as she showed you in that shot and we'll show you in a second, this is the area where we have the crash. most of the impact is toward carol avenue but it's on that light rail track and that's why they can't have the typical muni light rail go through the area. a bus rail is in place taking you to sunnyvale. let's get a live look out there. there is that congestion in the area. all the traffic control there. be careful if you must go
6:33 am
through the area of 3rd and carol, there will be traffic control and you see the folks slowly making their way around. that light rail vehicle is the reason they have to have a bus trail in place. back out to the maps. on 101 we see a slowdown because of the volume of traffic getting in and out of san francisco. more people may be taking the bay shore freeway and over toward 3rd. that's an option for you. a evenfender bender but it does sound like any lanes are blocked. the east shore freeway, standard flow of traffic so that's good news. the dublin area, weekend 5 has a good volume of traffic and is starting to bog down here. visibility is all right for the drivers. that's okay. we're seeing san hojose.
6:34 am
880 not a big concern. downtown san jose seeing more volume. saratoga we're starting to see the speeds come down as well. >> 6:34. time to get a quick check of why are forecast as we look out at the golden gate bridge. commuters coming in and out of the city. christina hinted that september is one of the true great months of weather for the bay area. what's in store? >> a little bit of a cooldown today and we'll bring down the heat as we head deeper into the week. 58 for san jose, 59 in san martin. it's starting to feel more like fall each and every day. we're starting out with a full blanket of low clouds. that's why why are temperatures are within a degree or two of each other this morning. that onshore flow will contain you all day long. as a result, even when those clouds burn off between 10:00
6:35 am
and 12:00, we're still going to get that cool westerly flow. you'll feel that all the way out in the tri-valley today. these are your eyes. temperatures will jump out of the 50s and 60s and into the 70s. it will be beautiful in the south bay. for us right around 70 degrees. out in the tri-valley, down to 83 degrees. we do have some changes to tell you about as we head deeper into the week. we're going to warm you up. and typically september is the warmest month in san francisco. you may not know that but we average about 72 degrees each day in the month of september. but look at what happens as we get into october, november, december, those numbers just crash right down. enjoy the stretch as long as it lasts. we'll talk about more in our next report. back to you. >> thank you, christina.
6:36 am
>> let's check the markets with scott. >> we were talking earlier about the confusion the market felt. 142,000 jobs added in the month of august. we learned that friday and everybody thought that didn't make any sense. we saw the markets barely move yesterday and we're watching the same today as the dow barely moves. back to you. >> thank you, scott. >> still ahead, a rare virus breaks out across the country. what health officials say you need to know to protect your children. >> got a tip for nbc bay area's investigative unit? help us hold the powerful accountable.

6:41 am
abortion. she purchased abortion drugs and said they could not find a facility to do the procedure and had no money for a hospital procedure. >> and a muni train hitting a pedestrian creating problems with the commute. >> and the hunt is on for a mountain lion in the bay. why fish and game is concerned the cat will strike again. >> and a tropical storm sinks cars and flood streets. >> a live picture here where we wish we had a submarine. certainly not to that extend here in san jose and the south bay as the morning gets ready to get going. 6:41 on your monday. we'll be right back.

6:49 am
line. not a lot of traffic through carroll avenue because there is already a bus bridge that's set up to get folks to and from where they need to go through this corridor. the pedestrian who was struck was on the ground around 5:00 this morning and awaiting an ambulance. that person has been transported to the hospital and has major trauma to his head and also injuries to his face as well. his condition is right now critical and we're working on an jup date regarding his situation. but regarding the traffic situation, there is going to be an impact if you use muni to get where you're going on the t 3rd line. there is a bus bridge in place, give yourself a couple extra minutes as you are trying to head out to where you need to be this morning. reporting live in san francisco, kris sanchez in the bay. >> let's see how tough the commute is in. let's check in with mike inouye. bus bridge in place.

6:51 am
that's better news as you hit your morning commute. approaching the bay bridge, we have some slowing toward the east shore freeway, typical pattern. we did have a crash on the northbound side at 680 around sonoma boulevard. that might have been enough distraction to cause a little more slowing. south bay nothing unusual. i'll show that in the next report. i want to show you what i just caught a view of at the san mateo bridge. traffic is flowing but it's slow over toward the peninsula side on highway 92. back to you. >> the issue of same-sex marriage takes center stage in a san francisco courtroom in a matter of hours. the 9th u.s. circuit court of
